What a great compilation of history, fantasy grandmothers' stories. The mixture of 1 page stories as well as those that are longer gives the story teller many options. Was a little disappointed with the lack of color in the illustrations. They are dark but then some of the stories have dark lessons also. Must also remember that these stories may have only been told in the evening beside a fire or by candle light. As you read some of them you can almost hear the grandmother crone's voice or the elder man's low but shaky pitch. Great book to have in a personal library.

This is a beautiful book! I had something very much like this when I was a child. The color plates and ink drawings are full-page renderings and ALL of the fairy tales are included. It comes in a printed volume cover and looks so nice on the bookshelf. I would highly recommend as a gift to yourself! Very happy with this purchase.
